The CPS Principal Project will be displayed at St. Chrys' in the Cloister through June 2019.
Principal Project is an ongoing body of work within CPS Lives, a citywide non-profit arts organization where Chicago artists are paired with Chicago Public Schools to share each school’s unique story. The photographic portraits of Chicago Public School Principals in their offices to show what the leaders of public-school look like today. The formal portraits of the Principals in their personal space show the dynamic range of character and personality of each individual. The way each Principal presents themselves in their portraits shows how they would like to project their leadership. Momentos and signage in their offices tell stories about the individual, what things are important to them and their ideas of leadership in their school community. By looking at the Principals using traditional documentary methods, hopefully it will change conceptual and cultural perceptions of what a leader of a public school looks like.
Please join in the Cloister on April 30th at 6pm for wine and cheese and to learn more about the Principal Project.
